Hi everyone.......I normally have a day off on Wednesdays but today I am doing a sweet little mini-tea? for some lovely ladies.They decided that the High Tea was a bit too much food for them so they are coming in for a scaled down version.They will get  a yummy scone with jam and cream, a piece of orange and poppyseed cake,a melting moment biscuit and tea sandwiches.  
should be a bit of fun...will let you know!

pretty flowers

Hi everyone.....thought I would show you some new pretty flowers that have arrived in store this week.
soft pink and cream roses...yum

These are fake rose buds......but don't they look so real??
Had to pinch a couple of stems for home, just could'nt resist!

I put some in a silver coffee pot in the window of the shop.The afternoon sun was streaming in....had to take another pic.Soooo pretty!

And these gorgeous creatures are little velvet forget-me-nots.Dont they look sweet in the crystal dish???
They will come in handy for future craft projects.

Well that's all i have time to show you today...catch up next time.Have a great evening!!!

little trip away

Last weekend I was lucky enough to duck off for a few days up to Cairns to visit my parents who are at Innisfail(about 1 hr south).I booked my tickets months ago and was counting down to see them.( had'nt seen them since April) It was lovely to spend Father's day with Dad and Mum's birthday was only a few days beforehand so it was perfect timing.

They took me sight seeing and showed me all around the area.It was only 4yrs ago a massive cyclone went through the area..and unless you were looking for the signs you would'nt have guessed that the whole area had been devastated.This is a pic of Paranella Falls it is the ruins of a castle that a spanish man built for his new wife.Apparently she would only move to Australia if he built her a castle.These days you can have a tour through the ruins and parklands.Gorgeous!Was trying to imagine what it would have been like in it's hey day.

This is the view at night ...spectacular!
On the Monday Dad had to work so Mum and I went to Cairns for the day .Had lunch on the esplanade and then lot's of shopping and coffees! A few tears when it came time for goodbyes but a very enjoyable weekend.Will see them again at Christmas and the way the weeks go wont take long at all.

Off to the Gift Fair in Sydney this weekend to buy some more goodies for the shop, fill you in  next week
